Nokia 6280 & how do i reset my voicemail number..

[ Edited ]
..as i've somehow set it to '123' (the talking clock) so when i try to check my voicemail i'm just getting what time it is and not my messages.

my instruction book for the phone says i can go into messaging > voice messages and then select the 2nd option which is (the first option being listen to vm messages) voicemail mailbox number to enter,search or edit the number but my phone just says 'not allowed' when i press select. Please help me.

UPDATE: I've found a workaround for my problem by putting my vm number on as a speed dial on a different keypad number. However i would still like to know how to fix the problem. :smileytongue:

Re: Nokia 6280 & how do i reset my voicemail number..

Sorry to be a pain...but as I have mentioned I have found a workaround.
However i would really like to know how to officially fix the problem of having the incorrect voicemail number as when I get a new message my phone automatically asks if I would like to listen to it, but I’m unable to use this feature as it dials the talking clock! (123).

Please shut me up by telling me what you know works to fix the problem.

I haven't mentioned it before but if it helps I'm with T-mobile and I brought the phone from a T-mobile shop.

Go to Messaging > Voice Messages > Voice mailbox number. Input your number and that's it.

:smileysad: already said i've tried that i think.

i've tried what you've said and it just says '! not allowed' when i press select.
Plus theres already a number set for it '123' what i'm trying to do is change it to the right one or get rid of it!!.

sorry about the '!' but i have been waiting for nearly 4 days now for an answer that works.

On the Three network, I can simply go to Menu --> Messaging --> Voice Messages --> 'Voice mailbox number' and then change the number to what ever it should be.

If your network had blocked you changing it, give them a call (if you're on contract, it should be free) and they can message you the settings which sould automatically update your voicemail numbers.
